Keep Your Children Safe Online

According to The Social Age Study by Knowthenet.org.uk

A Gamification Journey

– Stella’s Story

A few years ago, all I had to do to keep my children safe online was to put the computer in the hall way, or the living room and just walk by every now and again and check to see what they were up to. Now children have so much at their fingertips, with tablets and smart phones giving them full internet access from the privacy of their bedrooms, or outside our homes and schools.

So my biggest challenge was how do I protect my own children?
